For provenance geeks some real news.  While perusing an email from HLRC I noted an example of the rare 1823/2 quarter that I did not recognize.  After consulting the excellent image gallery in the book by Rea, Peterson, Karoleff, and Kovach the “new” example was indeed the coin plated in the 1925 Browning reference.  We have been looking for this XF example!  It last appeared 85 years ago in 1935 on the Louis Hemmer premium list. From the Great Depression to the great pandemic its whereabouts have been shrouded in mystery.  If anyone can fill in the missing provenance that would be great!  Stay safe all.
